The Coopers individual cans are very aggressively priced when you consider that they are eligible for Super Saver Shipping on Amazon. Their kits are perhaps slightly less aggressively priced than are the individual cans, but are also available for Super Saver Shipping with no further purchases. A couple of clicks and they can be on their way.
The purchaser should also be aware that Coopers Cans and Kits make 6 gallons of beer, while the norm for American kits is only 5 gallons. (And as a dig at all my fellow backward Americans, let me say that these kits actually make 23 liters of beer. Americans were supposed to be adopting the metric system back in the mid-1970's, but I guess Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama missed the memo, so we, along with our close allies, Liberia and Burma, remain using our quasi-British system apart from everyone else in the world.Read more ›
The Malt both crystal and liquid included in this kit was incredibly easy to mix, and the total brewing time took me about an hour. The fermenting stage for this beer was incredibly quick, and I had my first drinkable beer about 10 days later (record time for me). I was wary of the carbonation drops that came with this kit as I'm used to using priming sugar but tried them out anyways. They were fantastic, sediment stuck to the bottom like a champ and the beer was perfectly carbonated. I could almost drink these brews straight from the bottle.
If you're just getting into the hobby this is a simple kit that will help acquaint yourself to brewing, just make sure you move beyond them eventually or you'll miss out on much better home brews you can do!
Beyond that, this is a pretty solid pre-hopped stout extract. A lot of people use it as a base for other recipes, but I just followed the included instructions for the most part. Notable screw ups:
1) I boiled the extract. This was a mistake. Traditionally, many homebrewers insist on boiling their extract, but opinions are changing on this. You DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT boil pre-hopped extract like this one. You risk boiling off some/all of the hop characteristics. The instructions that come with the kit say only to boil the water and sugar (or the Coopers Brew Enchancer should you go that route)...follow them. They are right.
2) I screwed up my water temps (partially due to boiling more materials than I should have) and ended up pitching the yeast into the wort at 90F. While this is in the tolerable range for the Coopers yeast (barely), it produced strong estery (almost raisin-like) flavors. I'd recommend making sure the wort is at 70F-75F, even if the instructions say 80F is still within the "good" range, unless you want a bit of fruitiness.
Fermentation stopped after about 9 days in the 68F-72F range. I then bottled, and just so I could try more of Coopers' stuff, I used their carbonation drops. After a week the beer was nice and carbed.Read more ›

Great summer beer. Nice crisp flavor, light color with fine bubbles. Great if racked with oak chips and tequila. Hops much more subtle than other cerveza single can kits. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Debbie
I ordered two cans of the Cooper's IPA. They were a bit dented in shipping, but otherwise appear to be useable. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Brad Taylor
